In order to celebrate talented local, national, and international female artists, FilmScene's “Women’s March” will showcase female-directed new releases alongside classic cinema, films with local roots, and dialogues about the female perspective in the industry. The Obermann Center is pleased to co-sponsor the Vanguard Voices series, four films highlighting the work of directors of color. Each of these four screenings will feature a scholar-host who will lead a talkback and provide context. The four scholars—Hyaeweol Choi (Korean Studies), Brady G'Sell (Anthropology and GWSS), Emily Wentzell (Anthropology), and Jacki Rand (History)—will join FilmScene's Rebecca Fons to kick off the series and plant questions to consider during your viewing.
